How long can the Cardinals hold on with half a bullpen?

The Cardinals stand a half game out of first place in the National League Central Division as the calendar gets ready to turn to May. But I wonder for how long a team with excellent starting pitching and a solid offensive core can keep it together when the bullpen is sucking the confidence out of the rest of the club with its terrible start to the year.
